Michael Dixon has not played yet this year, and if Gabe DeArmond (of Power Mizzou)’s sources are correct, he will not play again at the University of Missouri.
Over the weekend, a series of tweets from his former teammate, Kim English, and a woman that responded to him hinted at the reason behind the suspension. Then, local newspapers found the police reports from August, where Dixon had been accused of rape, but no charges were filed after an investigation. Today, an older report has emerged, where another accuser declined to file charges in 2010, but which contains troubling information.
A Student Conduct Committee took administrative action against Dixon, despite no criminal actions being pursued. The basketball team, and the University has different standards than a court of law, as well, and if DeArmond is correct (and I trust he has strong sources), the University is ready to move on now after the second report has gone public.
